The Caribbean island Curacao is home to more than 35 captivating beaches, a diverse heritage spanning 55 different cultures, 'live and let live' attitude and unrivaled European architecture; Curaçao remains one of the most exceptional islands of the region. Its capital city, Willemstad — where Punda and Pietermaai are a UNESCO World Heritage site — with its iconic colorful Handelskade backdrop and roster of museums, monuments, flavorful restaurants and shopping, was selected in 2013 as one of the Top 5 Cities in the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveler's readers.  Curaçao's natural beauty, pristine diving and snorkeling sites are a favorite with divers and adventure seekers, and its beaches and idyllic weather, situated on the outer fringes of the Hurricane Belt, has won it further accolade and recognition.

 

PM78 Urban Oasis Curacao is located in the historic Pietermaai District at Pietermaai 78 in a new townhouse with a monumental look and feel.

At Pietermaai 78 we are offering 5 luxury apartments. The Beach House Pietermaai is located in a monumental mansion at Pietermaai 18, the best spot for your honeymoon!

 

The central location of the apartments makes PM78 the perfect spot for relaxation and enjoying each other, your family or your friends. And also for daytrips to play golf, diving, horse back riding, sailing or relaxing on the many natural beaches. In the evenings you can easily visit the excellent restaurants, all on walking distance of your apartment.

 

The nearest beach is on a 10 minutes walking distance and you can reach the popular beaches like Mambo and Cabana beach on the Sea Aquraium Boulevard by car or local bus within 5 minutes. These sandy beaches offer happy hours, music, shops and the Sea Aquarium with dolphin shows.  Also a city beach is within 2 minutes walking distance reachable.

 

Curacao is a prime location for diving fanatics: the water is warm and clear and the beaches are snow-white with palm trees softly swaying in a light breeze.  You can reach also easily the beaches on Westpunt, like Porto Marie, Grote Knip and Cas Abao. Perfect snorkeling spots, or visit the national Christoffel Parc, Shete Boca with the natural bridge and swimming turtles, or visit the old plantation manors.

 

In our street in historic Pietermaai District you will find everything you need for an ultimate vacation. A trendy lounge and ocean club, atmospheric restaurants, cozy cafes (and happy hours), hair stylist, drug store, small shops, a diving school with dive shop and a small supermarket, all within 1400 feet of the accommodation. At about 2000 feet you will find the Willemstad historical city centre with a diverse range of shops, town squares with patio cafes, the historical synagogue, the harbor with docked cruise ships, the pontjesbrug (also known as the swinging old lady), many museums – too much to list!
